's tax -- the house and the senate? caller: both houses of congress should not be paid unless they are in session. they are not accomplishing anything. i think it is a shame that they're not taking care of this. it is mainly the house. the house has not accomplished anything in the last three years. times on obama1 care. i think it is a shame. that they are not doing anything. they are on vacation more than they are working. they should not get paid unless they are working. host: talk about the department of defense and your thoughts on how you think this will affect u.s. military footing. caller: it eventually would. talking about the military, i wish you would do a program on the military supply chain. most of the things that are for our military are being made overseas instead of here in the united states. that is a security -- it has to do with our security. for the call.hank you let's go to randy from shreveport, louisiana, independent line. caller: good morning, i agree with the man from south carolina earlier.. the people in washington should be taking the pay cuts. acr
ceiling deal. third, that's a repatriation tax reform out there. fourth, the keystone pipeline is going to get approved. fourth, more brainiac immigration reform. and then obama obama care pull back. and no new tax hikes. i happen to like all of those. that's kind of what i'm thinking. joining me from illinois, joining me on the set, we welcome back to michael pento. and the author of the coming back bond market collapse. that's not a good thought to start on. but i will go to you first because you may be skeptical. but i think that things are changing in washington, d.c. i think the president's political power has been weakened by various scandals and what not. and i see these straws in the wind about good immigration reform and budget cutting and you saw in the paper today the deficit and the spending share of gdp are coming down. are things getting better? >> the main point, the fed is about to taper. that's going to send interest rates rising. the view on my part is that they're going to hit 4%. that's where they were in the spring of 2010. >> i agree with that, by the way. i just s

reform and all of that without putting washington and george or raising taxes. we believe there are positive solutions and that is what h.r. 2300 incorporates. >> host: should every american have health insurance? >> guest: everyone should have access to the health care coverage they want for themselves. to have the government to dictate to them what they ought to have in their health care coverage, that's not america. that's not who we are as a people. but a lot of folks say we have a someone that is 23-years-old healthy fellow and there are a lot of them across this land. if they want a high deductible catastrophic plan because it best suits them and their pocketbook, then they ought to be able to do so. instead, what the law currently says is no, you can't have that. you have to have a soup to nuts health care plan. every american should have access to health care and that is what h.r. 2300 thus. >> host: did you sign it because the health care expansions -- >> guest: he was on through his college caree
don't have the exchanges ready when the individuals are either going to be taxed or fend for themselves, that puts the revenue in the stream without another major portion of the law being enacted, and it's wrong, and it's contrary to the way we're supposed to do business in a country that abides by the rule of law. neil: all right. so in the house it doesn't look like this thing has much of a chance right now as far as making the same push. maybe it does. but is this law on automatic pilot? i mean, because you always hear these daunting numbers. it's very, very tough to change a law already in place however unpopular, however enormous. what do you say? is. >> well, that's what we knew all i a long. -- all along. in the senate, yes, it's tough. the house, i think, is voting on doing away with the individual mandate even as we speak if you'll flip over. but, basically, what we -- my best hope, neil, is that we can defund the irs enforcement of in this. that's the one part of this law that has to come back before the appropriations committees each year for additional money,

that secret if the justice department has its way. basically, u.s. tax authorities have been trying to pull a veil of secrecy back on these accounts. the swiss cabinet last week came up with a proposal that helps the u.s. follow the money trail, so some banks can provide information to the u.s. on potential clients who have transferred money elsewhere just as the u.s. was trying to crack down on tax evaders so the likes of some of the banks expected to participate in exchange toll escape criminal prosecution. this is a bit of a compromise by the swiss parliament. another story going around are the wars in the telecommunications arena. sprint trying to maintain its market share against the likes of verizon and at&t. its come up with a new marketing pitch to offer unlimited talk, text, and data. currently it's been offering just unlimited datan to a monthly plan. with many corporate changes out there, the likes of the japanese player softbank taking over sprint and sprint in turn taking over clear wire, there have been concerns about what this means for the company's business model. the ceo h
were determined to protect in that debate was the new markets tax credit, something that has benefited some of these kinds of initiatives throughout the country. so whether it was long ago and the low-income housing tax credit of which mercy housing has participated in over and over again and the new market tax credit, one of the current versions of the story. or the section 8 vouchers or the rest of that, public policy has played a role. but we can only be successful in achieving the funding for that public policy if we have examples of national significance to say this must be a priority. and it is a priority because mercy housing and st. anthony's makes people the priority. results. deeds, not just words. the words are important, but they are no substitute for making something happen from it. we all know the gospel of matthew and i was hungry, you gave me to eat and that is what st. anthony's has done. when you were homeless, you gave me shelter and that is mercy housing and they have come together. it's not just about food and housing, but it's about dignity and stability and resp
can you talk about tax cuts? no, times can you talk about taxation, regulations, and too much spending? the message is simple that he gets boring after a while. even though it is totally true. so i think, i'm in no position to offer advice. you've got too much greater mine sure. >> the basics and get a state in a way that is appealing. that has to be much more outreach to the people that we're trying to reach. >> same question. eric cantor is going to be here today or tomorrow. what would you say that eric should advise his caucus and candidates to talk about in the next election? >> well, there's a fundamental previous decision you have to make. the question right now is does the republican party need to motivate its coalition or modify its coalition? you always have to motivate your coalition when you're going to election. that's necessary. you can't get rid of it and start over it. the question is whether you need to modify it in some significant ways. i think there are some good reasons you need to. demographic change, generational change, the problems with working-class voters. th
in waste so long as they level it out with taxes and regulations. he conveniently ignores how government really works. the general accounting office came up with that 107 billion dollar number this week and told there was no single list of government programs. some departments don't have an accurate staffing list, they don't know who is in, who is out. and who should and should not get paid. does government ever change? tell me which programs have been cut apart from white house tours? of the 15 separate food programs, which has been eliminated? nothing ever changes, really, does it? we bring you this not to get you all riled up. we're not trying to score political points, just a couple of questions. have you had enough yet? do you think maybe it's time for a change after eight years of all government all the time?

costs and more taxes. under the individual mandate, the i.r.s. which is still under multiple investigations for unfairly targeting conservative groups will play a central role in the implementation of the health care law in our country. last fall, the congressional budget office estimated that nearly six million americans, primarily in the middle class, will have to pay a tax under the individual mandate, which is two million more than was initially estimated. when the affordable care act is fully implemented, the average individual mandate tax will be nearly $1,200, which clearly, clearly contradicts the president's previous statement that the individual mandate is -- quote -- "absolutely not a tax increase." end quote. further, families are facing significant increases in premiums. "the wall street journal" recently published animals of premiums that concluded that under the health care law, some americans will see their premiums double or even triple, which is the opposite of the promise that was made by the president that premiums would go down by $2,500 for american fam

tax, immigration. eventually he'll be forced to take up the bill that we passed here. or the country will be left with no immigration reform at all which is a bad, bad outcome. the speaker should despent with the posturing and do the right thing and do it now. he should take up the senate farm bill that speaker -- i'm sorry, chairman stabenow worked so hard on. should pass that bill. they should take you were over there and pass it. the farmers are waiting. all the nutrition groups around the country are waiting. he should do that right now. he should take up the senate immigration bill. i say that for the second or third time here today. these measures, the farm bill, passed overwhelmingly on bipartisan votes in this chamber. and the passing the farm bill would create jobs and reduce the debt by some $23 billion. and it will be important to note that there are reforms in the farm and food stamp programs without balancing the budget on the backs of hungry americans. in fact, it goes a long way to reducing our debt. passing the immigration bill would help 11 million people who are alr

of stanford takes in in all its taxes. what i found was this alternate universe of everybody except for the doctors and nurses making all kinds of money. the exceptions happen to be medicare. the problem of not that they were overpaying, the problem was, if anything, and i agree with david on this, a lot of medicare patients are underpaid because they have very little cost if they have a supplemental program, and therefore they just keep going to doctors, even if they don't really need to. i had one patient who had $350,000 worth of bills one year. a lot of it was for serious stuff. he had cancer, he had a heart attack. he had an eye exam and a bunion. because medicare with their discounts over $60. that is the kind of thing we have to correct. i do not look at this as a right or left issue. we have to look down the middle. there should be means testing for medicare. god knows there should be medical malpractice reform, which, if anything, will take away from hospitals the excuse of over testing people with cat scans and everything else at exorbitant rates. but medicare works. medic
